"In 2012, TMNG Global accomplished each of the goals we outlined at the beginning of the year. We achieved profitability, on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis, in the second half of the year; we reduced our expense structure and drove efficiency and enhanced accountability in our business; and we established a culture of increased communication and trust. And, as we delivered against our strategic plans to evolve the firm, we started to see early signs of renewed growth in the fourth quarter," said Donald Klumb, CEO of TMNG Global."In 2013, we are sharpening our focus on building the foundations for growth by improving intra-company collaboration across business units, deepening our relationships with strategic customers, tightening our alliances with key business partners, and enhancing our software solutioning capabilities.At the same time, we are leveraging our strengths to capitalize on opportunities in targeted growth markets.We enter the year with a much improved cost structure and a strong balance sheet, which includes net working capital of $18.2 million."  Financial Results for the Thirteen Weeks Ended December 29, 2012  Revenues in the fourth quarter of 2012 were $12.9 million, compared to $13.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 and $12.7 million in the third quarter of 2012.During the quarter, TMNG's gross margin was 38.7%, compared with 34.8% in the fourth quarter of 2011 and 38.6% in the third quarter of 2012.The year-over-year gross margin expansion demonstrates the Company's success in improving its operational efficiency and reflects a favorable services and solutions mix.  Selling, general and administrative expenses were $4.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $6.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 and $4.7 million in the third quarter of 2012.The year-over-year decline reflects significant reductions in the Company's selling, general and administrative expense structure that were implemented during 2012.  TMNG Global reported net income of $0.3 million on a GAAP basis, or $0.04 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2012, a significant improvement from the net loss of ($1.4) million or ($0.20) per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2011, and up from net income of $0.1 million or $0.02 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2012. After adjusting for the after tax impact of depreciation and amortization expense and share-based compensation expense, non-GAAP adjusted net income was $0.5 million, or $0.07 per diluted share during the fourth quarter of 2012.The comparable non-GAAP adjusted net loss was ($1.2) million, or ($0.16) per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 and $0.4 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012.  Financial Results for the Fifty-Two Weeks Ended December 29, 2012  For the fifty-two weeks ended December 29, 2012, revenues were $53.0 million, compared with $63.1 million in fiscal year 2011.TMNG Global's gross margin was 37.8% for the fifty-two weeks ended December 29, 2012, compared with 37.0% in fiscal year 2011.  Selling, general and administrative expenses were $21.2 million for the fifty-two weeks ended December 29, 2012, compared to $27.1 million in fiscal year 2011.  Net loss for the fifty-two weeks ended December 29, 2012 was ($1.2) million or ($0.17) per diluted share, compared with a net loss of ($4.4) million or ($0.62) per diluted share in fiscal year 2011.Non-GAAP adjusted net loss, adjusted for the after tax impact of net realized losses on auction rate securities, depreciation and amortization expense, and share-based compensation, was approximately ($0.3) million, or ($0.04) per diluted share, for the fifty-two weeks ended December 29, 2012.The comparable non-GAAP adjusted net loss for the fifty-two weeks ended December 31, 2011 was ($2.5) million or ($0.36) per diluted share.  In addition to reporting net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share on a GAAP basis, this press release contains certain non-GAAP adjustments which are described in the schedule entitled "Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income (Loss) to Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income (Loss)" that accompanies this press release.In making these non-GAAP adjustments, the Company took into account certain non-cash expenses and benefits, including tax effects as applicable, and the impact of certain items that are generally not expected to be on-going in nature or that are unrelated to the Company's core operations.Management believes non-GAAP financial information provides a useful basis for evaluating underlying business performance, but should not be considered in isolation and is not a substitute for GAAP financial information.The Company believes that providing such adjusted results allows investors and other users of the Company's financial statements to better understand TMNG Global's comparative operating performance for the periods presented.  TMNG Global's management uses the non-GAAP financial measure in its own evaluation of the Company's performance, particularly when comparing performance to the prior year's period and on a sequential basis.TMNG Global's non-GAAP measure may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even if similar terms are used to identify such measures.Although TMNG Global's management believes the non-GAAP financial measure is useful in evaluating the performance of its business, TMNG Global acknowledges that items excluded from such measure have a material impact on the Company's net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share calculated in accordance with GAAP.Therefore, management uses non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP results.Investors and other users of our financial information should also consider the above factors when evaluating TMNG Global's results.
